Recumbent exercise bikes have long been terrific workout accessories, but they're usually somewhat bulky, making them inconvenient for people with small homes or apartments. Enter the Exerpeutic 400XL recumbent bike, which folds up for easy storage and fits inside a closet, corner, or other compact space. It's the easiest way to enjoy the benefits of a recumbent workout without dedicating an entire room to your exercise equipment.
Despite the space-saving design, the 400XL is plenty powerful, with a precision-balanced flywheel and a quiet V-belt double-drive transmission system. The bike also includes an eight-level magnetic tension control system so you can find the right resistance for your training goals. It's easy to monitor your workout progress via the easy-to-read LCD display, which tracks your distance, calories burned, time, speed, scan, and heart rate. Best of all for frequent exercisers, the 400XL's semi-recumbent design is inviting and comfortable, making it ideal for people who dislike upright-style bikes or who are recovering from injury. Add in a large seat cushion and backrest and you have a great bike for riders of any size and body type.
Other details include extendable leg stabilizers; a hand pulse sensor for reading your heart rate; a three-piece, high-torque crank system that provides a smooth, consistent pedaling motion; large pedals with safety straps; and transport wheels for mobility.

Frequently Asked Questions
Use a laptop with it?
Yes! I was looking at the fitdesk for TWO YEARS! I was concerned about being on the computer and telephone and needed something quiet. Finally, I was able to put together my own exercise desk similar to fitdesk. What I wanted: something comfortable, quiet, roomy and able to get a good workout on without being expensive. I purchased this semi recumbent bicycle and then I purchased a folding table by lifetime (the adjustable one to 36") and it's PERFECT. LOTS more room than the fitdesk to work (and sturdier). I love how the bike and the desk collapse and fold away when needed. My combo ended up cheaper than fitdesk. Also, I felt the fitdesk was too "high up" or "verticle" - I love how the semi recumbent bike has me in a more relaxed desk-like position (and not too low to the ground like recumbent bikes). The seat is also extremely comfortable (and for the fitdesk I'm sure I'ld need to purchase a gel covering over the seat). This bicycle is super quiet and the resistance is perfect. It will give you a great workout if you want it or you can just cruise and burn calories while you work without even knowing it. Cruising speed on a recumbent bike at 4 hours a day burns 1,300 calories! Something else I thought was cool was that this bike has an odometer, so I can know exactly how far I've "traveled". One thing that might be a "con" to some people - this bike doesn't seem to fold up as small as a fit desk - but to me the.
Is this bike good for short people? Would this one work or do you have any suggestions.
Yes seat adjusts to fit -- might not be as good if you are very tall but I have 34" inseam and it works for me at highest setting. Very sturdy.
Is it good for me I am 4"9?
I don't know if it will fit you or not, but I am only 5' and it fits me. I could actually cycle comfortably on one slot below the lowest setting but I lowered it to the lowest setting which worked even better. I have very short legs and my inseam is 28" but shoes may add another inch or two if you need it.
